Tomb Raider Reborn Semi-FinalistsIn the Tomb Raider Reborn contest, we challenged you to bring the new Lara Croft to life, based on the trailer and asset pack. We saw amazing renditions of this fierce survivor, showcasing Lara's inherent resourcefulness and intuition. The competition was stiff, but our judges narrowed it down to the top 25. These will now be sent to Square Enix's Senior Art Director Brian Horton to choose the final three Winners.

There are so many wonderful great moments in Tomb Raider, far too many to count, but we want to remember why we do and what made certain sequences and adventures special to each one of us personally. This is the chance to bring together fans of Lara that have been with her through the games' infancy and the ones she's created today.
This contest is about the very things that make Tomb Raider special. So this begs to question: What makes Tomb Raider so important to every one of us? What has made the game unique? What makes us keep running back to Lara? So we

New TR games ANNOUNCED + TRAILERS and CONCEPT ARTExciting news, raiders!New TR games ANNOUNCED + TRAILERS and CONCEPT ART9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Earlier today we posted a blog about two possible Tomb Raider games and they both were just officially confirmed!
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.
In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could

Quote: "You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain"
I liked this entry, as well as all of their entries for being based in history, this one in particular struck me
Quote: "War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other"
This one was very simple in execution but hit the nail on the head
Quote: "We stopped checking for monsters when we realized they were inside us"
this was probably the most used quote, and there were plenty of amazing entries for it, but this one was my absolute favorite

Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter

How I became a SessKik fanHey everyone!How I became a SessKik fan2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm still busy finishing the commissions in the wait list and working on other projects, but I finally finished this journal with the story of how I became a SessKik fan. I had promised to write it a long time ago, so I'm very glad I'm finally posting it. I had to cut some parts because it was becoming too long and confusing, so those are not all my reasons. I may write a SessKik Frequently Asked Questions to mention other aspects. ^-^
Alright, so I think most of you've already noticed how much I like Sesshoumaru and Kikyou together. XD And I frequently receive comments asking me why, especially because they are not a canon couple.
First, I want to say I think people are free to like any pairings, canon or not, and nobody should say how you should create your fanart/fanfictions. They are just fictional characters after all. However, I personally can't go too far away from the canon. The original story is very important for me.
So, why do I pair Sessho

The time to unlock the second one has finally come and we are happy to present you an exclusive collection of videos and commercials Lara appeared in. We’ve collected everything we managed to find and it turned out to be quite an impressive pile of videos so we divided it into three thematic sections which we will reveal one by one. So enjoy part one – Commercials. Two others are soon to follow!The second secret unlocked!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix (previously Eidos Interactive) video game series Tomb Raider. She is presented as a beautiful, intelligent, and athletic English archaeologist-adventuress who ventures into ancient, hazardous tombs and ruins around the world.
The character first appeared in the 1996 video game Tomb Raider. She has also appeared in video game sequels, printed adaptations, a series of animated short films, feature films (portrayed by Angelina Jolie), and merchandise related to the series.

All you have to do is write a story about anything you want. And I mean ANYTHING! XD
You can also write a poem instead.
And then, you draw a picture that has to do with your story. So basically, a cover. It can be your main character, where the story takes place, anything.
Post your entry in the comments below.
Rules: No nudity.
It can have curse words, but I would prefer for everyone to keep it clean.
The drawing cannot be photoshopped. It can be digital art, a painting, or just a drawing. But the artwork MUST be yours.
You can partner up with a friend (so If you can't draw, or if you can't write, you can partner up with someone!).
Your story does not have to be new. As long as it's appropriate and maximum 10 pages, you can enter it. So it can be something you wrote 4 years ago, if you want.
Please do not make your story any longer than 10 pages.
You have until October 31.

also: its already safe to say that this contest got the most submissions in the three year old history of FGE with almost 50 submissions while the focus of the contest was a quite niche one.
Last year it was all about the Samurai Shodown fighting games during Januar-Februar, in 2014 it is going to be a Capcom Celebration Contest of their many Fighting Games and Beat'em Ups with the EXCEPTION of Street Fighter and Darkstalkers since both of these series have a ton of fan art already and we try to get those other games and characters in the spotlight on FGE!
